Get YouTube Premium for Free With Xbox Game Pass


Xbox Game Pass is known for high-quality games that join the service every month, but a little-known benefit also gives you access to other services. The Xbox Game Pass perks page adds new trials for many third-party services along with in-game benefits for live service/multiplayer games. This month’s perk includes a free three-month trial to one of the best subscription services you can get - YouTube Premium. The only catch? It’s for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, so having a standalone subscription for PC or console won’t cut it.

You can redeem the perk by visiting the “Perks” section in the Xbox Game Pass app on Windows. Xbox console owners can directly redeem them by navigating to the section, while mobile users with the Xbox Game Pass app can check them out there too. The YouTube Premium trial must be redeemed by June 22, with the $13.99 monthly charge kicking in after it’s over. Do note though that you cannot stack the trial on top of an existing subscription, and it’s only available for new users.



YouTube Premium lets you stream and download videos without any ads. It also lets you play videos in the background with your device's screen locked, giving you access to the ad-free tier in the YouTube Music app. The service also includes original content from many of its biggest creators, YouTube Originals.

That's not all, as April's Game Pass perks include trials of other services such as Discord Nitro and Calm.
